Tour description provided by Viator

Enjoy exploring two of Hokkaido’s most beautiful lakeside spots, Shikotsu and Toya. Stunning in every season, we love these beautiful places and their connection with nature. Enjoy local ice cream and produce, and then take a ropeway ride up Mount Usu, an active volcano near Toya that overlooks both the lake and the ocean.

Depending on the season, the changing views are beautiful but ever-changing. Next head to Silo View Spot and take in the panoramic views of Lake Toya, followed by a stop for ice cream and coffee at the beautiful Lake Hill Farm. This ice cream is some of the best we’ve ever tasted! Next, we’ll drive through Toya itself for a walk along the lakeside.Finally, move onto Mount Usu and Showa Mountain, an active volcano with a ropeway to the top, surrounded by a mini-village of local crafts and stores. First we’ll grab lunch together here, before taking the ropeway up the mountain and enjoying the short walk at the top to see the lake and ocean views. It’s one of our favourite local spots!8am Leave Sapporo Station9:30am Arrive at Lake Shikotsu and enjoy the beautiful views11:20am Arrive at Silo View Spot11:40am Get to Lake Hill Farm for an ice cream and coffee break12:30pm Enjoy a short walk along Toya lakeside1:30pm Arrive at Mount Usu Village for lunch2:30pm Take the ropeway up to the top of Mount Usu and enjoy the panoramic views4:30pm Leave Mount Usu6:30pm Arrive back at Sapporo Station
